Description
The Winfield Scott Wellington collection consists of project photographs and drawings, spanning the years 1930-1971.

The collection also includes drawings relating to exhibit designs for Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, and Wellington's involvement at University of California Berkeley, including student projects from a Decorative Arts course.
Background
Winfield Scott Wellington (1897-1979) was born in Houston, Texas in 1897. He received his primary and secondary education in New Orleans completing his first two years of undergraduate education at Tulane University, then attending the Georgia School of Technology for one year. In 1918 Wellington began studying architecture at UC Berkeley; receiving a Master of Arts degree in 1922, and a Graduate in Architecture degree in 1923. His graduate thesis reflected his belief in the importance of self-expression through design, and his love of objects in the personal environment.
